we've about 40.000 record in two repository (with 10.000 record with 
full text)

I think the big problem is in Apache delivery files (also you've to tune 
it for Perl and both static content...), there should be a away to serve 
files without using perl, or in a minimal way. Another big problem is 
updating views, takes a lot of time and I had to disable some of the 
because it takes ages (days) do regenerate/update the view.

The site is often at load 1, 1.5, most of the time serving pdfs outside. 
It works but not perfect.
